  1. And I thought I had it bad. Haru likes to eat sticks so she can't be in the backyard unsupervised. At all. Has to be on a leash for bathroom breaks because she will grab a stick and play catch me if you can and somehow manage to eat it while I am trying to get her. Glad you found the peroxide remedy and it worked. Has he been feeling well since?
  2. I use heartguard (heartworms) and nexgard (fleas & ticks) together and Haru does fine. I used Sentinol for the first two months I had her, but it didn't do enough for flea control which is a must because of an allergy on my part. Talked to my vet and this is what they recommended trying.

    I already feel it starting to hit me, at the point Haru becomes well behaved I will most definitely want another one. That'll be another year at least though, lol

    Oh so awesome that y'all will be adding to the family!!!
  5. Aww! He's so cute! Thanks for posting a weight. I've been worried that Haru might be a little underweight but she weighed in at 13.5 lbs yesterday at the vet so it looks like she's keeping up with everyone. Sounds like things are going great with Nuttah. Looking forward to more updates!
  6. Maybe consider taking Kitchee for a separate ride occasionally so this doesn't turn into an automatic habit for him. Just a thought.
  7. I will second the part human. My fiance says she's like having a conversation with a 3 year old that has just grasped the meaning of language. "Haru, it's time to go to bed" "No Mom, no bedtime."
  8. Aww!!! They're adorable!!! Congrats to the new owners
  9. So now that I have Haru, I can say with confidence that I did indeed pick the most cat-like dog I could find. She does all the between the foot with the legs rubs and brushes and the weird contorted sleeping positions. As well as that independence streak. Also, first thing after she wakes up she gets super cuddly and lays down in my lap

    Welcome Home Haru

    Wow! So in the span of a few weeks we have gone from a short little puppy to a slightly adolescent looking 3 month old (today actually). Even though she's only gained 5 pounds from when she first got here XD. Yesterday was a vet appointment and 2nd round of shot. We're almost there!!! Also, I didn't think it was possible for her to get any cuter but then they put a bandanna on her -squee- Ugh, so spring in Texas has started which is lovely but also brings fleas But also brings bluebonnets, but again also fleas. Thankfully I've only seen a few fleas on her and they aren't spreading to t
  11. The crate with the blanket does sound like the best idea. Maybe with a little bit of space at the bottom just enough so he can see Kitchee. Is there anything he just goes crazy over? A stuffed kong or something? Put one of those in there the first few rides to try and give him something else to think about.
  12. I have learned to tell somethings. Like I'm starting to understand when it's a hungry or pee bark. But the barking I'm having problems with is just her being disrespectful. She wants my attention or what I have and she is barking at me to give it to her (remembering that she is a 10 week old puppy right now). I can tolerate the barking if I believe she's actually trying to communicate something to me about a need, but mostly she's just being disrespectful. I've told my boyfriend that whining and low yipping is ok because that's her opinion about what is going on. But the disrespectful "GIVE IT
  13. Sometimes I think it's getting better and sometimes I think it's getting worse. She's definitely developing more attitude. Like this morning, I had already fed her, we had walked and then I made my breakfast and sat down. She barked at me while I was eating and was trying to get up in the chair with me. I put my food down, put her in the x-pen, which is right beside the chair, and didn't hear another peep. It's getting a bit better now that she has more bladder control and right after she's done her business I don't have to worry about her so I leave her out in the house while I get ready. But
  14. Everything sounds like it's starting to come together! I tried the mixture you recommended this morning for Haru's food and it worked like a charm. She ate all of it and was licking the bowl although thankfully she still retained her slow eating. Have you tried using some Rescue Remedy with Wyot before he gets in the car to help him chill a little? This could help ease some of his anxiety. Perhaps some in car crating could also be in order with the retraining being that when he jumps around like that he goes in the crate and he only gets his freedom if he behaves in the back? I know that's

    Welcome Home Haru

    So the forum is being weird and not letting me add more pictures after the fact. So here they are.

    Welcome Home Haru

    Good Morning All! Today I was startled awake to what I thought were the sounds of choking. I grabbed Haru from her kennel and checked but nothing was torn that she could have swallowed. Took her into the kitchen with better lighting and sat with her while she convulsed (like you do with hiccups, that slight jump of your body). Held and pet her through the whole thing until she stopped, and then took her dog bed and put it in bed with me. She snuggled right up and went to sleep with my arm around her I googled kennel cough videos this morning worried she had somehow picked that up, but

    Sick Puppy?

    Thanks y'all. Glad to report that after a few days of mixing in the canned food with the probiotics we are now having solid and consistent pooping. I'm going to start introducing the mixture Kittyndoc recommended and if she handles it well switch to that fully when we run out of the canned stuff. I think the dry kibble just isn't appetizing enough by itself. Oh well, I don't really mind taking the extra step.

  19. So jealous. That's how I want Haru and my cat to be. My cat has finally sniffed Haru, but still wants nothing to do with all that puppy energy. it will come with time. Maybe when she's a year old
  20. This is so cool! I would love to go to an event like this and learn more. I've always wanted to visit a reservation; my great great grandmother was full-blood, but I'm very white and don't feel like I'd be welcomed. This would be a wonderful event to go to if I lived closer -sigh-
  21. Sherab, I'm having the complete opposite. While Haru does great in the crate, I've got an x-pen for her and she HATES it. She's fine as long as it's in the room with us, but if we walk over to the living room to sit down and don't move it she starts her banshee wails. It's more of a she's not being included in what we're doing thing I think. Like I said, if it's in the living room and we're there she fine. It's when she gets put in the kitchen. I guess that's when she knows one or both of us are about to leave or start doing stuff where we don't include her. We tried using the spray bottle las
  22. KittynDoc, definitely try the elk anter. I found one that was specifically for puppies at Petsmart. I soak in just a little bit of salt free chicken stock and give it to her when it's bedtime. After a few nights of that she goes into her crate without protest because she knows that's when she gets her special treat. It's also nice because if she wakes up during the night, that keeps her occupied rather than her screaming to get out. That was when I started seeing my restful nights. It's great to hear that you're finally getting some sleep again. Also, I'm sorry, it seems I've semi taken o
  23. When I call Matt while he is at home, as soon as I start talking Haru will start barking at him because she hears me Very cute but we're both getting tired of those banshee wails.
